Notes/Commercial Description:
We wondered what would happen if a monstrous pumpkin ale, plump full of spicy gourdiness, were aged in fine fresh rum barrels to add suggestions of delicate oak and candied molasses. Rumpkin is what happened! This first member of the Annual Barrel-Aged Series was brewed with roasted pumpkins from a local Boulder County farm, and spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.

Had this on tap at Beer Run in Charlottesville.
I dislike pumpkin beers with a passion, but this is like sweet, alcohol infused, liquid heaven.
Nothing like the average pumpkin beer, although I don't think I could drink much more than 1 at a setting, this would be perfect around the campfire, on a cool fall night.

On tap at Tiger! tiger! in San Diego. Murky dark brownish amber in the little globe glass. Not much head. The carbonation barely swims up through the swamp.

So sweet it's shocking. Every sip invokes a shiver. You keep hoping it will get better. Spicy like pie, and sweet like a misguided liqueur. If only there was a plain vanilla custard to pour this over.

This year's batch they call 18.5%. I believe it. Not quite revolting, but the 8 oz glass was more than the two of us could get through.
